Cantina Valpantena ‘Torre del Falasco’ Veneto Corvina IGT 2012

Other Red from Italy - Veneto
Review Date : 12-Dec-2013
Corvina fruit from Veneto, partially undergoing appassimento drying and fermented to 13.2% alc. Dark, deep ruby-red colour with good heart, lighter on edge, but youthful in appearance. The bouquet is softly full with dark red berry fruit aromas intermixed with delicate savoury game and earthy nuances. Dry and medium-bodied, light and attractive cherry and berry fruit flavours are allied with savoury bramble and earthy, game elements. The tannin extraction is relatively modest, with suppleness to the mouthfeel, and a lively freshness from elevated acidity is prevalent. This has vinosity and presence, and the flavours follow a grainy line to a soft, drying finish. This is a light Veneto red with some vinosity and savoury cherry flavours. Serve with pasta and pizza over the next 2-3 years. 15.5+/20 Dec 2013 RRP $16.75
